Craft Supply Checklist for Kid's Crafts

By Pam Lester

I often get asked, "What types of craft supplies do I need to keep on hand for kids crafts?"

So, I've come up with a list of basic crafting supplies that will keep your kids creative and crafting up a storm!

It's a good idea to keep all of your crafting supplies organized and labeled so they are easy to find. I suggest three sizes of containers: plastic shoe boxes, empty baby wipe containers, and baby food jars. I also recommend a file folder to organize papers and cardstock. These storage containers will help sort and organize most craft supplies. There are also many commercial storage cabinets and units that will also work well!
